has just been cast as the lead in Netflix's next Marvel superhero show Iron Fist. This follows Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and the upcoming Luke Cage, as the fourth quarter of the eventual Defenders show that will supposedly bring them all together. I only half sort of knew the story of Iron Fist so thanks to EW for this:
"In the comics Iron Fist is Daniel Rand, who at age of 9 travels with his family to a lost mystical city called K’un-L’un. After some tragic twists of fate, Rand is adopted by city’s ruler and taught advanced martial arts and the mystical power of the Iron Fist. As an adult, Rand returns to his native New York City and begins a career as a superhero. Some fans have urged Marvel to cast an Asian actor in the lead role, though others countered that picking an Asian actor simply because the hero’s ability is martial arts would be a stereotypical move. "
I think they should have cast an Asian actor just because there are so many hot Asian actors that I'm not seeing often enough, but Finn's perfectly pleasant I s'pose. I mean Kit Harington seems to like him, so that's good enough for me.
